If you are referring to the best zoom behavior I was under the impression that
JP was still sorting that out.  That may have been a poor assumption on my part.

If you are talking about wxWidgets 2.9 being the required version for building
kicad on windows, I wasn't aware that a decision has been made.  I thought it
was just a proposal by JP.  In any event, we should create a cmake macro to
verify the version of wxWidgets found is correct.
